In heavily populated urban areas and now on the Dorset World Heritage Coast there are  plans to build and expand waste incinerators. A new report from MPs says these projects  are a danger to public health and should be halted. In Dorset the Council should respond by  rejecting proposals for a new plant on Portland. The all-party parliamentary group on air pollution says that incinerators are a major health  hazard. It concludes that new projects and expansions should be stopped immediately to  protect human health and cut carbon emissions.  Damage from tiny particles emitted by incinerators is especially dangerous. The report says:  “There is NO safe level of particulate exposure, adding: “There is no debate about the fact  that long-term exposure to very small particles is bad for human health.” (Pollution from  Waste Incineration: A Synopsis of Expert Presentations on Health and Air Quality Impacts;  online at: 

AT THIS MEETING, campaigners in North London and Dorset share their experiences of  research on incinerators and the forms of protest that most effectively challenge them. All  are welcome to attend.
